Thanks Jay, a better error is a good idea for this.

> I incorrectly setup the configuration file to have the metrics go to /var/kafka/metrics while the logs were in /var/kafka. On startup I received the following error then the daemon exited:

> This was on a brand new cluster so no data or metrics logs existed yet.
> Moving the metrics to their own directory (not a child of the logs) allowed the daemon to start.
> Took a few minutes to figure out what was wrong.
